Malaysia asked Meta, TikTok to remove more content in 2023 – Times of India

KUALA LUMPUR: Facebook-owner Meta and China’s TikTok restricted a record number of social media posts and accounts in Malaysia in the first six months of 2023, data published by the firms showed, amid a jump in government requests to remove content.
Malaysia PM Anwar Ibrahim’s administration, which came to power in November 2022 on a reformist platform, has faced accusations of backpedalling on its promises to protect freedom of speech amid increased scrutiny of online content in recent months.
The government has denied allegations of stifling dissent online, saying it wanted to curb provocative posts that touch on race, religion and royalty.
